Man: We've been decoyed. Corinthos and the girl are gone.
Helena: Well, they'll be back, but we'll be ready, just like we were for poor, unsuspecting Jax.
Courtney: Wait, Jason, wait. Wait, wait -- wait, I know what Carly did to you.
Jason: Where are you doing? Where are you going?
Courtney: Hey, hey. You think, think.
Jason: Courtney, Courtney --
Courtney: Jason --
Jason: I love you.
Courtney: Jason --
Jason: I love you. You're my whole life.
Courtney: Jason, wait. Wait. All right, think. Ok, you went to Shadybrook; you went to get Carly out. She flipped out -- oh, my God. She flipped out and she -- Jason, she stabbed you with a needle full of drugs. Come on, that's why you're doing this. Please. Hmm!
Faith: You don't really want me to call Sonny. That's just habit. Alcazar is the man you love.
Carly: No. Uh-uh, it's not true.
Faith: How much more are you going to let denying your feelings cost you?
Carly: Well, I don't know.
Faith: I know what you need -- a strategy. Just say the words "I love Lorenzo."
Carly: Why -- why?
Faith: Positive reinforcement. You put something out into the universe and it will come back to you. Just say it out loud, Carly. It's easy. "I love Lorenzo."
Sam: Would you please get this thing out of my face?
Jax: Sorry. I thought you were one of the bad guys coming to finish me off. Why didn't you say something?
Sam: I didn't -- I didn't know if you were alive or not.
Jax: Oh. What are you doing here anyway?
Sam: What do you think, Jax? I'm looking for you.
Jax: Well, the thought crossed my mind you might be after the rest of the treasure.
Sam: How greedy do you think I am? Come on.
Jax: My opinion changes from moment to moment. I guess I should thank these guys for saving my life.
Sam: Hey, let me help you.
Jax: So, Sonny -- Sonny thought you found the treasure and took off.
Sam: Yeah, I know.
Sam: And he was halfway right -- I did find it, but then somebody knocked me out and I woke up and I was alone and -- and the treasure was gone. I have the -- I have the bump on my head if you don't believe me.
Jax: No, that's -- you don't have to show me your bump. That's really not necessary.
Sam: Well, what about you? Jax, how did you end up in this place?
Jax: I just saw a pirate with the treasure and --
Sam: A pirate?
Jax: Yeah. He lured me into a trap, which opened up to this pit. Someone certainly called in reinforcements, added a sick twist to the game and I know exactly who it was -- Sonny Corinthos.
Sam: No way.
Ric: Get that report back to me as soon as possible. Oh, hey. Oh, God, Iím an idiot -- our date. How long have you been waiting for me at the P.C. Grill?
Elizabeth: Oh, long enough to have left two messages that you never returned.
Ric: Oh God, Iím sorry. I just -- I've been swamped, you know? I've been -- you hate me. Ok, I don't blame you for it, really.
Elizabeth: Oh, I'm sure Iíll survive the humiliation of being stood up by my husband in front of half of Port Charles.
Elizabeth: Honey, I'm kidding.
Ric: Ok, I deserve that. I'm sorry, really. I'll make it up to you, I promise.
Elizabeth: Oh and I'll make sure of that. So, were you working on a break in the case against Nikolas, I hope?
Ric: I don't know, he's -- so far, he's our only suspect.
Elizabeth: Listen, I wanted to talk to you about that. It -- it has occurred to me that you might find yourself in a really bad position.
Ric: What do you mean?
Elizabeth: Well, Zanderís made no secret of the fact that he would love to see Nikolas convicted. I mean, he wants Nikolas as far away from Emily as possible so he can move back in.
Ric: Any chance of that?
Elizabeth: No, no, never, but Zander can't see that. He's very single-minded when it comes to Emily.
Elizabeth: Anyhow, it's not difficult to figure out where this is going. Listen honey, I know how badly you want a family, but you need to promise me if Zander tries to hold this baby over your head --
Elizabeth: To encourage you to go after Nikolas --
Ric: No, no! Get a hold of him! Get a hold of him!
Zander: Get off me!
Ric: What the hell is this?
Zander: I was worried about Emily; I asked Nikolas where she was. He jumped me!
Nikolas: Zander threw the first punch -- oh, God!
Zander: This guy's more out of control every day. I want him arrested.
Ric: You know what? I got a better idea -- I'm placing you under arrest.
Courtney: Jason, wait. Just wait. Wait, wait, wait. Just listen to me.
Jason: Courtney, Courtney --
Courtney: Listen to me! Jason -- ok, hey! Listen to me. Ok? You're not thinking clearly right now. We can't do this, ok?
Jason: Wow, what are we doing here in our loft?
Courtney: Oh, Cameron said that you would go someplace that meant something to you.
Jason: Who's -- who's Cameron?
Courtney: Hey, Carly is stuck in Shadybrook -- that is our first priority right now.
Jason: Courtney, I love you.
Courtney: I know. I know.
Jason: She shouldn't be in there.
Courtney: No, hey, hey, hey! Carly checked herself in, remember? You went to get her out.
Jason: Yeah, she stuck me with -- she stuck me with a needle right here.
Courtney: Yeah. Listen, Carly was drugged without her doctor's knowledge or consent. There's something really wrong over there, Jason.
Jason: I'm not --
Courtney: No and we have to get her out, but I can't -- hey! Oh, my God, Jason! Hey.
Courtney: All right.
Guard: Anyone know Mrs. Corinthos' condition?
Second guard: How good can she be? She's in the nut house.
First guard: I heard she was in there before.
Second guard: Maybe she really is insane.
Lorenzo: I'm freezing.
Guard: So use a blanket.
Lorenzo: Is it too much trouble to turn the heat on?
Guard: I guess not.
Faith: All you have to do is say it, Carly. Admit your feelings and it will set you free. There is no reason to fight it. Lorenzo is every woman's dream -- gorgeous, powerful, willing to do anything to have you. You've been such a good girl, denying yourself great love, but the time has come to claim what belongs to you. Reward yourself. I can get you Lorenzo. Just give me the word.
Carly: I don't want Lorenzo. I want Sonny.
Faith: You're missing the point, sweetie. Sonny doesn't want you. If he did, he would be here.
Carly: Uh-uh, uh-uh. Sonny doesn't know where I am.
Faith: Jason knows so that means Sonny does, too, but he's given up and accepted the truth -- that Lorenzo is your destiny.
Carly: Jason --
Faith: No, don't think about him.
Carly: No, you said Jason knows, Jason knows. Jason -- Jason was here.
Faith: He was trying to keep you away from Lorenzo.
Carly: Jason is my friend. He's my friend and he would only keep me away from somebody if it was wrong.
Faith: Who knows? Maybe he wants you for himself. I mean, I have to hand it to you -- you have a remarkable way with remarkable men -- Sonny, Alcazar, Jason. What I wouldn't give to be able to absorb some of that, to --
Faith: Absorb it from the inside out, to take it and make it my own. Let all those suckers eat their puny hearts out.
Carly: Uh-uh, uh-uh, uh-uh.
Carly: I don't understand you, I don't understand you.
Faith: I had one great love -- one -- and he was taken from me by one of those remarkable men with puny hearts, but I digress. You still have a chance at yours.
Carly: Oh, Sonny --
Faith: No. You fool -- Lorenzo! You want him. You know you do. Yes, think about it. Lorenzo's lips, his hands, tearing at your clothes, owning you. Bodies tangled, passions rising. You're with him now. I can see it in your face. Say his name, Carly. Call it out.
Carly: I know what you're doing. I know what you're doing and Iím not going to let you. You are not my friend. You don't care about me, you never have.
Faith: No, no, no, no, no.
Carly: I know why you're doing this to me.
Faith: You're wrong. I am the only one on your side, the only one not trying to keep you away from Alcazar.
Carly: You think -- you think I don't know why you're pushing Alcazar towards me? You want me to sleep with him. You want me to sleep with him and have Sonny find out --
Faith: It is what you want.
Carly: And then Sonny's going to find out and he's going to kill Lorenzo. That's what you want.
Faith: Sweetie, you're delusional. Let me get someone -- oh! No, no!
Carly: I will not let you hurt us, you bitch!
Faith: I need some help in here!
Faith: Help! Help! I need some help in here!
Faith: Help! Oh, God! Creature tried to kill me!
Carly: Yeah and I will next time, you bitch!
Carly: Get off of me!
Patricia: Just leave me alone with my patient.
Courtney: How are you feeling?
Jason: Like --
Courtney: Whoa, ok --
Jason: I could go --
Courtney: Stay down. Come here -- hey, hey. Lay down, lay down. Come on.
Courtney: Yeah, you were supposed to get a shot to counteract the sedative, but you left the hospital before they could give it to you. Ok, this isn't going to do. Jason, come on. Come on, we need to keep moving. Get up. Come on. Come on. It's ok.
Courtney: Got it?
Courtney: Ok. Just walk.
Jason: Oh man, I can do it.
Courtney: Ok. Ok.
Jason: Ok, just --
Courtney: No, Jason, come on. No. Jason, you have to fight it. Come on.
Jason: Ok, ok.
Courtney: You just lean on me. Keep moving, ok?
Ric: All right, would you like to press charges?
Nikolas: Oh! You bet I would.
Zander: There was no witnesses. It's my word against his.
Ric: Yeah, well, it'll stick for about 12 hours. Should be enough time for you to get some much-needed perspective. Interrogation room.
Zander: You're keeping awfully late hours for a pregnant woman, aren't you?
Ric: Wait outside, please. Mind telling me what the hell is wrong with you?
Zander: Why don't you tell me what's going on with you. Our deal was to put Nikolas in jail, not me.
Ric: You know what? If I have to lock you up in order to keep you from blowing this whole thing out of the water, so be it and another thing -- I don't appreciate the little comment to Elizabeth.
Zander: What, I can't talk to her, express my concern for her condition?
Ric: Cut the crap, ok Zander? We both know you're trying to intimidate her. I'm not going to stand for it. Now, you need to remember something -- you're not the only one with something at stake here, all right? You're pining away for your ex-wife. I have put my career on the line for you, pal. I have suppressed evidence, I have buried leads on other suspects, and I have put together a case against an innocent man for you.
Zander: No, not for me -- for the custody of my child!
Ric: That's right and if what I've done comes out, I'm going to lose my job, I'm going to lose Elizabeth and she's made of a lot better stuff than you and I, Zander, ok? She might take offense to the fact that Iím putting her -- her best friend up for murder, but not having her in my life is unacceptable.
Zander: Maybe you need to think about whose good side you want to be on.
Ric: Well, right back at you junior. Because if I go down, you're going down with me. Now, Iím going to go out there and I'm going to clean up your latest temper tantrum so that we can get back to where we started here. You don't get in my way again -- you understand me?
Zander: What are you going to do?
Ric: You're spending the night in the holding tank and I'm reinstating Nikolas' bail.
Jax: What makes you think that Sonny is above stealing your treasure?
Sam: Well, for starters, he already had a chance and he didnít. Jax, my treasure was in my duffle bag the whole time and he couldn't have cared less.
Jax: Did Sonny know that there was more treasure?
Sam: Yeah and he didn't care about the map either.
Jax: Oh, Sonny's not known to do his dirty work, ok? He probably sat back and relaxed while you rooted out the treasure and then he sent a few men in to collect it.
Sam: No. He knows how much this treasure means to me. He wouldn't do that to me.
Jax: Let me ask you something -- where'd this unshaken belief in Sonny come from? Is it because of his actions or are you attracted to him?
Sam: I know you and Sonny have a rocky history together.
Jax: The guy destroys everything he touches, especially women.
Sam: I don't know that person. The Sonny I know is a complete gentleman to me.
Jax: Right. Yeah, all gentlemen carjack women at gunpoint while fleeing the scene of their latest shooting. No such gentleman would ever be so underhanded as to steal a bloody fortune in treasure!
Sam: I don't want to fight about this! I am not asking you to be best friends with him. I'm asking you to respect the fact that my experience with Sonny isn't yours. I see another side, plain and simple.
Jax: Wow. If -- if only you knew how many times I've heard that. The guy must weave one hell of a spell. I mean, you started lying for him before you even knew him.
Sam: I knew what I saw in his eyes that night, Jax, because Iíve been there before. Look, I'm ready to leave, especially if you're going to keep obsessing over Sonny because I told you -- nothing happened between us. Believe it or not. I really don't care.
Lorenzo: Guard! I asked your friend to turn on the heat.
Guard: You feeling all right?
Lorenzo: I'm just cold.
Faith: I don't think the treatment here is helping Mrs. Corinthos. I think she might need a facility better suited to her condition. Ferncliff comes to mind.
Patricia: Hmm. Dr. Lewis will not allow her to be transferred to Ferncliff.
Faith: What, are you mentally challenged? Dr. Lewis doesn't need to know. That is why I pay you. Make sure you transfer Carly under an assumed name. You have no idea how many men will charge to her rescue if they find out she's been transferred to a facility for the criminally insane.
Patricia: Don't be afraid.
Carly: No --
Patricia: No, no, no, we're going to make you feel better.
Carly: Oh, please, please, please, please --
Patricia: I want you to relax.
Carly: No, no, no, no, no more. Please, please -- ow.
Patricia: That's a girl. Just rest and I will look in on you later.
Jax: You left this behind.
Jax: Keep it. Probably need it sooner or later.
Sam: Jax, if you came after me to fight, then you can go.
Jax: Well, excuse me.
Jax: You know, I was concerned about you. I had visions of you wrestling with a pirate over that little piece of gold and getting yourself killed. Obviously, getting to Sonny was more important.
Sam: Would you try not to be so smug, please?
Jax: So I guess he took the treasure and took off, huh?
Sam: So it seems.
Jax: I hate to say "I told you so."
Sam: No, Jax, you love saying it, but I don't believe a word of this note.
Jax: Are you kidding me? It's in black and white.
Sam: Yeah well, Sonny swore to me he wouldn't go after the treasure.
Jax: Sam, how dense do you have to be about this, ok? Sonny's word means nothing. How much more proof do you need?
Sam: More than this. Sonny did not write this note, Jax. Think about it -- if he's going to take the treasure, he's just going to take it. He's not going to write a note. Whoever took it wrote this note to throw me off track.
Jax: Oh --
Sam: Why? Because the treasure is probably still on this island. Then what happened to Sonny?
Jax: A simple hostage situation, a few well-chosen words to inspire sympathy, and another unbreakable allegiance is born.
Sam: Wow. You really are jealous, aren't you?
Jax: Yeah, well, so what if I am?
Alexis: I got your message. All right, now what? Never mind. Nikolas, what happened? Is it true what I heard?
Nikolas: Yeah, Lansing decided to reinstate my bail.
Nikolas: Well, Zander picked a fight and tried to say I started it. I guess Ric didn't buy it.
Alexis: Well, that's quite a turnaround, since he fought your bail with every obscure precedent that he could find. So now all of a sudden -- uh-uh. Uh-uh. Something's not right here.
Nikolas: Not really, Alexis. I'm still standing trial for murder with false evidence stacked against me.
Alexis: Or maybe he realized that he went over the top with the bail issue, so he's trying to show impartiality by going by the book.
Nikolas: Let's stop wasting time dissecting Ricís motives, ok? I'm getting out of here, that's what matters. What about this fence guy, Ben? I'm positive he's the one who killed Samís father. We need to find this man.
Alexis: I've been following your lead with Ben following Sam to Azure Key. Unfortunately, there's a hurricane so there's a communication problem. There might be something else to accomplish here. I heard what happened. Do you want me to get you out of here?
Zander: Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest?
Alexis: My interest here is seeing that justice gets done.
Zander: Then we're on the same page.
Alexis: We're not even reading the same book, Zander. I am asking you one last time as your friend to stop this before it goes any further.
Zander: You already know what I said, Alexis.
Alexis: And then Iím going to give you one last chance to let it sink in. Zander, what do you think, that you're going to put Nikolas in prison and that Emilyís going to be out there waiting for you?
Zander: Alexis, just leave me alone.
Alexis: It's not going to happen. It is not going to happen because I am not going to let Nikolas go to prison and even if he did, it wouldn't change anything because Emily is not going to stop loving Nikolas any more than you can apparently stop loving her. Stop hurting everybody just because you're hurt. I want you to leave them alone and I want you to stop holding that baby over Ric and Elizabethís head. Just look to the future. Just let the past be the past, Zander.
Zander: You sound so sincere. It sounds like you really care about me.
Alexis: I do.
Zander: Maybe, on some level, but not the one where Nikolas lives. When it comes down to it and it's me or him, you're going to sink me. So, thanks for the advice, but no thanks.
Courtney: Ok, come on. Why don't you sit down?
Jason: No, no, no.
Courtney: Yeah -- come on.
Jason: No, I -- I can't. I got to get to Carly.
Courtney: Hey -- hey, come -- come here.
Courtney: Just sit down.
Cameron: Courtney, it's Cameron.
Courtney: Oh, look, I found Jason and -- and he's starting to come around.
Cameron: Is he alert enough to talk?
Courtney: Hold on. It's Cameron.
Jason: How's Carly?
Cameron: Not good and I think I may have found the reason why. I'm pretty sure I saw Faith Rosco right outside her room.
Sam: I can't -- I can't believe you actually just admitted that.
Jax: What, is it like a win for you or something?
Sam: I don't know how many ways to say it, Jax. Nothing is going on between me and Sonny. You don't have to be so jealous.
Jax: Look, your intentions might be pure, but Sonny's are not.
Sam: Oh --
Sam: Would you stop projecting your Sonny stuff onto me? I have a mind of my own and the last time I looked, I thought something was going on between us.
Jax: Yeah, well, maybe that's not such a good idea.
Sam: Then why don't you just leave?
Jax: Because I can't, ok? Believe me, I tried to, but -- but it seems to be impossible.
Sam: Ok. Now you're getting to something I want to hear.
Jax: I don't know if I can trust you, Sam. I mean, you've made me understandably wary, ok, but I -- I can't seem to get you out of my mind. Now, I know that you're fearless and that you're capable --
Jax: And that you don't need anyone but yourself. But my first instinct is always to -- to want to protect you, to -- to want to hold you and to want to be with you -- which probably makes me the biggest fool on the planet, but I don't care.
Sam: You know, that was probably the most perplexing declaration of whatever -- whatever it was that I have ever heard.
Jax: Well, it's the best I can do.
Sam: I'll take it -- except for one thing. You called me fearless? I'm terrified of what I'm feeling right now.
Jax: Well, you're not alone, but I'm willing to chance whatever this is, even though I know you'll probably take off after the treasure and the treasure after that and the next thing after that.
Elizabeth: Hey, do you have a minute?
Zander: I got all night. Consider me your captive audience. Just don't bring up anything about how I need to move on from Emily or how she's in love with another man.
Elizabeth: Actually, I was going to mention that for you to have a prayer of being friends with Emily again, maybe you should lay off the people she cares about.
Zander: Yeah, that sounds familiar too.
Elizabeth: Well, then maybe you ought to listen, Zander. Look, Ric did some really terrible things to me and I thought that I would never, ever be able to forgive him. But look at us now, we're married because he was strong enough to change. He was strong enough to let go of his hatred and his need for revenge and I can't help but think how good it would be for everyone concerned if you could just take a lesson from him.
Ric: And once the paperwork is finished, your client is free to go.
Alexis: Thanks, that's very generous of you.
Ric: You're welcome.
Alexis: Too generous.
Ric: What does it take to win with you, huh, Alexis?
Alexis: The truth usually does it.
Ric: You know what? I don't know where this is going, but Iím really pressed for time.
Alexis: Well, make time. I'm just getting started.
Courtney: So if -- if Cameronís right and Faith really does know that Carly was in Shadybrook, I mean, she could use it to her advantage in a hundred different ways.
Jason: You don't have to worry; Faith's not going to get the chance. Hmm.
Courtney: Hey, Iím going to drive you, ok?
Jason: No, no. You're not going.
Courtney: Jason, you're in no condition and we have to get Carly out together, ok? Come on. Here.
Jason: All right. Whew.
Faith: That last dose took the fight out of her. Tell Dr. Grimes we're speeding up that transfer I suggested. Poor thing. Bullets and childbirth, comas, rewired brain waves -- you must be exhausted. But don't worry. Faith is here to fix you right up with a one-way ticket for an extended vacation at Ferncliff.
Carly: No --
Faith: Oh, shut up. I am sick of your whining. You should have cooperated with me when you had the chance and run off to Alcazar like a good little girl. Oh, I know -- it's hard but be patient. In time, those meds you are taking will send you so far out into orbit, your fantasies will become your reality. Sonny will blame Alcazar, kill him, go to prison, and Faith will rule happily ever after.
Lorenzo: Carly -- Carly? It's me, Lorenzo. I'm going to get you out of here, but you have to trust me. Can you do that? Carly?
Alexis: When you kidnapped Carly, it's because you wanted her baby, right?
Ric: Wait, wait -- what does this have to do with anything?
Alexis: Well, and sadly enough, you find yourself right back where you started. I mean, even you can see that and I want you to know that on some level, I can actually understand that you want your family and you will do whatever it takes.
Ric: What's your point?
Alexis: Well, my point is, is that Elizabeth is pregnant with Zanderís baby and Zander has promised to sign over custody to you. And I'm guessing that he hasn't done that yet because he's waiting for you to find Nikolas guilty of Cody McCallís murder. That way, Zander gets Emily, you and Elizabeth get to keep the baby and then my nephew -- he gets to go to prison, which is completely unacceptable to me.
Ric: That's quite a theory.
Alexis: I'm not finished. There's a more likely suspect -- a jewel fence that you haven't made any attempt to look for at all. I don't think that I have to tell you just how much trouble you are going to be in -- both professionally and personally -- if it comes out that you are tampering with evidence in order to convict an innocent man in exchange for a signature on custody papers. I don't know why Iím giving you a choice. I have no idea why Iím being so, so nice to you, but you can either risk me talking to a judge, or we can make a deal.
Elizabeth: Congratulations. I heard you're being released -- not that you should've been arrested in the first place.
Nikolas: Tell that to the judge.
Elizabeth: I know you'll be found innocent.
Nikolas: It's not a given, Liz. There's still a lot of fabricated evidence against me.
Elizabeth: Despite what you might think of Ric, he's only doing his job. See you around.
Nikolas: Yeah. Liz, wait. There's -- there's something you don't know.
Alexis: I'll push for a speedy trial, you keep Zander believing that Nikolas will be convicted and then at the last minute, you throw the case. If you so choose, you can drop an injunction barring Zander from any contact with the baby based on his police record and the fact that he's working currently for a known mob figure.
Ric: I thought Zander was your friend.
Alexis: Nikolas is innocent.
Ric: All right. One condition, though.
Alexis: What's that?
Ric: Don't tell Elizabeth.
Nikolas: Look, I know that Zanderís stalling to sign custody of the baby over to you and Ric and I just --
Elizabeth: And you're afraid that he's going to lean on Ric and make things worse for you? I can't speak for Zander, ok, and God only knows what he might try, but I can assure you Ric would never go along with it. He's changed, Nikolas. What is it that you wanted to tell me?
Nikolas: Uh -- I -- I thought it might calm things down a little if -- if Emily left town for a few days. So if you don't hear from her, that's why.
Elizabeth: Oh. Well, that's good. It's probably for the best. Ok. Well, thanks for letting me know. Take care.
Alexis: We're out of here.
Nikolas: All right.
Faith: [Muffled] oh. Stay away. Stay away from me. Stay away from me! Stay away from me! Oh Ė
Courtney: Faith, where's Carly?
Man: This is the last of it.
Helena: Excellent. Put it on the boat with the rest. As soon as the storm passes through, we'll be on our way.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sage: Dillon, why don't you tell Georgie the good news?
Sonny: I am not going after you one more time.
Sam: Did I ask you to?
Faith: It was Alcazar, ok? He stuffed me in the straitjacket and he carried your precious Carly away.
Lorenzo: I am going to take such good care of you.
